Many thanks to Father G for sending the link to the video below confirming the "right" way to ablaze the Feast of Saint Blase's blessing of the throats with lighted candles! But they know how to do it!
Also note that the altar servers are wearing green cassocks under their surplices!
Please note too, that this German church keeps the tradition of Christmas decorations or at least a part of them, up until Feb. 2nd. Obviously they haven't had time yet to dismantled the tree for St. Blase, but God bless them.
HOW MANY OF YOU SAW CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS OR A PART OF THEM STILL IN PLACE FOR FEBRUARY 2ND'S FEAST OF CANDLEMAS?
Finally, this video also shows how not to renovate an existing pre-Vatican II classically designed church building. Please note the magnificent original main altar, now obscured by the priest's presiding chair which is placed behind the new free standing box, I mean, altar.
If one were to explain to a neophyte the true meaning of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the awe and reverence needed not only in its celebration but also visuals, which of the two altars would promote awe and wonder at the renewal in a non-bloody way of the one Sacrifice of Christ? Just saying, or just asking!
